Fifty shades of orange

As you may or may not know, the color is Tangerine. THE color. Everywhere you look shades of orange are popping up, whether it’s peach or true tangerine. Sephora went so far as to partner up with Pantone and name Tangerine the color of the year (has this happened before, will it be annual now, what the hell?)  and they’ve released an exclusive collection of brushes, nail polishes, glosses, lipsticks, etc. I still haven’t succumbed to the nail polish or lipstick, although I did get a peachy Kate Spade lipstick and a peachy Sephora branded lipgloss in a moment of weakness on my way to the checkout. Orange is a tough one, because it doesn’t look great on a lot of people. It looks okay on me, but I feel like more of a tan is necessary before going all-out. Anyway, I’m going to scour the internet and find the cutest things I can in 50 shades of orange (not really, but lots, and that stupid book seems to be everywhere.)
